@nyunes Remind me of the format for this session. I assume this is a typo and that we are each presenting for 30 min with 15 min budgeted for discussion (30+15+30+15 min = 1.5 hrs) ?

Well, Tuesday and Wed are like that (30 + 60) because there is only one speaker. For Monday, it’s different. I think we said that @jakinh and I would talk for 30 mins and then you would talk for 60, but I think it’s maybe better to do 30 + 15 for each of us.

That’s right, we actually need to prepare that talk still. Nico, when are we going to do that!?!??!

We should make a separate topics for the numbered sessions so that questions and answers and follow-up discussion can stay close to the actual events.

For example, Monday’s first morning session should have a topic, and then the second morning session should have a separate topic since the conversation will be very different there. People can post links to their code or resources under discussion and so on. During the talks people can post live chat there instead of in Zoom, which everyone know is terrible chat-wise and then you can’t retain the things people said easily.

This will also people to follow the subjects they care about instead of an all-or-nothing firehose of discussion about everything in the meeting.

I’m sure this is somewhere but I haven’t found it yet. What room is it in? Somewhere in Loomis?

This is a good question. I assumed someone would be posting signage with those old-fashioned pointing fingers directing us to the room :laughing:

Loomis room 204 known as the interaction room. I posted some more details above

@jakinh @nyunes I’ll bring my larger and louder Bluetooth speaker today in case it is needed. Perhaps it will be useful to hear people on Zoom asking questions or possibly even participating in breakout code session discussions.

Feel free to capture conclusions/questions from todays constraints discussion related to Veronica’s session in the “home topic” for the constraints system design:

Here’s the constraint table link: Empirical and theoretical constraints on the EoS - HedgeDoc

@alford and others programming in Python: :link: Here is the documentation for the most popular YAML library for Python that we discussed at today’s session.
